Zoka is one of those places whenever I hear about it people either absolutely love it or absolutely hate it. Me, I'm absolutely obsessseeeddd. Kirkland has some good coffee places. My top 3 are Zoka, Rococo & Urban Coffee Lounge. If you haven't tried any of those places you definitely should. Zoka is in the heart of downtown Kirkland right next to the waterfront. It's always packed; usually hard to find seating but boy is it good when you do!!! Right now they are very popular for there Lavender Lattes (just what I hear in the good ole coffee grapevine).
